Critic Reviews for Moonlight

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (4)

  • There's an air of prefab provocation about the whole thing, and viewers should know that the director has a penchant for squirm-inducing images, not all of them strictly necessary.

    September 29, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Moonlight is a disturbing and daring thriller with an exceptional performance by 13-year-old Laurien Van den Broeck.

    August 18, 2006 | Rating: 3/4
  • A wild dream that spins into a nightmare, Moonlight isn't quite as provocative as it aims to be.

    August 18, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In this English-language Dutch thriller, a 13-year-old girl and a young Afghan drug courier fall in love while fleeing his employers.

    August 17, 2006 | Rating: 4/5
  • Not only is the candid (but never prurient) treatment of early-teen sexuality and drug use too hot to handle, but the narrative blend of fairy-tale wonder and nightmare logic feels sui generis.

  • A contrived, rather unpleasant English-lingo thriller set in the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Moonlight takes a precocious love story between a young rich girl and an Afghan boy to kinky limits where few auds will want to tread.

  • A pretty daring -- and disconcerting -- depiction of adolescent sexuality.

  • The situation compels you to keep watching, only to be disappointed when you realize the story's not going anywhere.
